Police in Lincolnshire have seized over 5 million indecent images of children over the last year.

It's an 80% rise from 1.5 million the year before, according to figures from the NSPCC.

The charity has released the figures as part of a campaign calling for more to be done to tackle internet abuse of children.

Only five of England and Wales Police Forces provided data to the NSPCC, after a freedom of Information request.

Lincolnshire Police says it's taking a tough stance on the distribution of indecent images of children.
